Default TS 6c: Council of Orange cont.

CANON 15. Adam was changed, but for the worse, through his own iniquity from what God made him. Through the grace of God the believer is changed, but for the better, from what his iniquity has done for him. The one, therefore, was the change brought about by the first sinner; the other, according to the Psalmist, is the change of the right hand of the Most High (Ps. 77:10).

CONCLUSION. And thus according to the passages of holy scripture quoted above or the interpretations of the ancient Fathers we must, under the blessing of God, preach and believe as follows. The sin of the first man has so impaired and weakened free will that no one thereafter can either love God as he ought or believe in God or do good for God's sake, unless the grace of divine mercy has preceded him.

The Council taught that original sin began when Adam and Eve fell from grace, that the effects of original sin are inherited, affecting body and soul, and that baptism repairs the damage done by the fall of Adam and Eve, except that we are left with a remnant of that first sin, which is concupiscence (a tendency toward personal sin).

For someone who has been baptised, the grace of God is necessary for all that is truly good, and that grace preceeds, accompanies, and follows acts of the free will.
